3 of us (all male) spent just over a week in Uganda travelling. We stayed in 7 different lodges & this was the best. Fantastic setting & well established, with a must-do boat trip very close down the Channel. Food was very good here & all services worked/present. We had rooms with a dull view but no issue whatsoever -...

With a stunning location boasting views over the Kazinga channel below and right in the National Park makes this a wonderful place to stay when out on safari. The food is lovely and the menu fairly extensive with local and foreign dishes in good measure and lunch is served out on the terrace overlooking bathing buffalo and elephants. It is...

The distance is worth the experience. This place is absolutely magnificent. A relief from the hassles and bustles in town. You feel each and every moment while at this place, beautiful scenic view of Lake Albert, the sound of birds as you have your early morning breakfast, watching elephants, crocodiles and buffaloes bonding on the other side of the lake...

It was an amazing experience of starting a new year with Lions, elephants and various wildlifes.. :) We spent there 2 days and 1 night whereas the ultimate trip can be of 2 nights 3 days. I must say it is a very nice place indeed.

Beautiful view, nice boat trip on the channel. The crater tour scenery was beautiful and the chimp tracking in the gorge was fantastic. Vincent was a brilliant guide. The other staff were also very friendly. The lodge is a too large for my personal liking. Except for the chimps in the gorge, wildlife in QENP was disappointing.
